PGM 2020 Appeal Message

"On your behalf, I accepted the invitation for Somerset

to hold the 2020 Festival in support of the Grand Charity.

"Based on the generosity of Somerset Brethren in

previous Festivals I was confident that we could raise

£2.8 million in support of the charity."

The Grand Charity is a grant-making charity which provides

relief grants for hundreds of Masonic families each year as
